Comments Very unique experience going back in time on an island that is unblemished by tourism. Dirt roads good enough restaurants and an excellent long beach. Swim guides escort two swimmers around whale sharks. The only limitation is how many boats are around the whale sharks with the protocol being only two in the water with a guide at a time.
